When I say Korean baseball what comes to mind? Mascot dance-offs? I bet it’s mascot dance-offs in the outfield.
While the MLB is dropping the hammer on Ryan Braun, the Korea Professional Baseball league is dropping beats for a mascot battle. Bud Selig is missing out on a golden opportunity with this one.
The post It’s a mascot dance-off everybody appeared first on The Nosebleeds.
BEST OF MAXIM
Commissioner Bud Selig defended baseball's fight against performance-enhancing drugs on Wednesday, declining to discuss the recent suspension of Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun or whether other stars will also face penalties.
Braun was suspended for the rest of the season Monday, a total of 65 games, for violating baseball's anti-drug policy. He is the first player to be punished...
Bud Selig is a genius. A $15MM per year genius:
This five-day “FanFest” held at the Javits Center in conjunction with the All-Star Game at Citi Field? It was PigFest, less in service to fans than to exploit both the All-Star Game and local fans, another ploy to pad what Selig always identifies as evidence of his puppet regime’s success: MLB’s bottom line.
Billy Cub Spreading LawlessnessNeed another sign of the apocalypse? Apparently, Bud Selig's minions have too little to keep them occupied (you know, like dealing with PEDs, interleague play and making the DH universal). They also have a pressing need to go after the unofficial mascot of the Chicago Cubs. 'Billy Cub' is a guy in a bear suit who wanders outside Wrigley...
Is the Baseball Players Association, usually regarded as professional sports’ most powerful union, no more? Perhaps not as toothless as the impotent unions representing players in football, basketball and hockey, but in light of the Biogenesis disgrace that’s the impression.
Director Michael Weiner’s recent comments the MLBPA would not stand in the way of Biogenesis suspensions...
Major League Baseball finally acted. Commissioner Bud Selig swung hard and made sure he didn’t miss. People wanted to act irrationally and ban players linked to Biogenesis for life without knowing the full extent of the information. Major League Baseball has played the case perfectly so far. Maybe Ryan Braun is getting a light suspension at 65 games, especially on a team with no...
With Ryan Braun the first fraud to fall, Bud Selig and Major League Baseball have their sights set firmly on their next target in the BioGenesis scandal – Alex Rodriguez.
The evidence is piling up as Selig’s investigators have uncovered a mountain of information dating back to at least the 2009 season. Sources told CBSSports.com that Rodriguez...
MLB has taken a harsh stance towards those who violate the league’s drug policy and seems insistent on moving past the “steroid era” of the game. Not only has the league instituted a strong drug testing program, but it is also working hard to enforce penalties. MLB went to great lengths to pursue the Biogenesis [...]
Why have we been talking about this for over a decade? Why is it still an issue? Major League Baseball doesn’t have a PED issue anymore, it has punishment issue.
Professional baseball leagues have been banning players for over 100 years but apparently Bud Selig didn’t get the memo. You know how you stop players from rampant gambling? Ban them. Amazing how that works. Mickey...
When the news that Ryan Braun would be suspended for 65-games by MLB for his involvement in the Biogenesis scandal, many MLB fans were shocked to hear that Braun accepted the suspension without appeal. Now that it appears that Alex Rodriguez is next on the list and likely have the hammer laid down on him soon, it finally feels like Bud Selig is taking some action.
But is he acting...
